So why is there a similarity of visions?
Have you ever had a dream that you were flying? What about a dream in which you get that feeling of falling? Human dreams often have common themes and human brain chemistry between individuals is not all that different. Simply because they have similarities doesn't mean they're is something paranormal going on. Zeus may have similarities with Thor and Jesus may have similarities with Krishna but we don't start assuming they're real because of that do we?

As far as I knew, the release of '___' in the pineal gland was the cause of near death visions. '___' also releases when you sleep so it's like hallucinogenic stuff and then there's the "drug" '___' which is the same stuff but can give you a peek into a different world as well.
One of the problems is still one of scientists brushing everything under the carpet.
It is only anecdotal because there is no scientific research to back it up.
but will also have to say "I don't know" they may even qualify the previous comment by adding "It seems unlikely".
Why are you such an evangelical skeptic?
If it were purely hallucination you'd expect to see completely different experiences with nothing common amongst them all.
Also, reading peoples stories about taking '___', all their experiences seem to share commonalities
brain releases dmt when you born, when you sleep, when you die. sounds to me like something to help the soul transition.

The '___' "experience" happens at birth (actually in the womb once you hit the pineal development), when you sleep and when you die.
My opinion: The "experience" is entering, maintaining and exiting the temporal realm we know as reality.

Near-death experiences 'explained': Scientists believe it's the last gasp of a dying brain
Scientists are so stuck in their little 3D material box that they just cannot accept that consciousness exists outside of the material. They really think that the brain is the source of consciousness, don't they? lol
